Serves 4 | Preparation time: 35mins | Cooking time: 35mins


  • 600g Ahia® Smoked Gemfish
  • 300g Basmati rice
  • 600ml milk
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 eggs, hardboiled, peeled
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 onion, peeled, diced
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tbsp chives, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Bring the rice to a simmer in 3 cups of salted water and cook until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender, about 15-20 minutes. Remove the rice from the heat and pour it onto a flat tray to cool it down.
  2. Bring the milk and bay leaf to a simmer in a saucepan and chop the Ahia® Smoked Gemfish into 3cm chunks and add to the pot, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, just until the fish begins to flake. Drain the fish through a sieve over a bowl, reserving the milk. Remove any bones or skin from the fish.
  3. Cut the eggs into quarters and set to one side.
  4. Melt the butter in a frying pan and stir in the curry powder. Cook until fragrant and add the onion, gently frying it until soft.
  5. Gently fold in the cooked rice and Ahia® Smoked Gemfish to the pan and cook for 5 minutes with about one cup of the milk. Stir in the eggs, Worcestershire sauce, cherry tomatoes and chives, and cook for 3 minutes. Season and serve garnished with fresh herbs and lemon wedges.
